Welcome to Thankful FUR 3 Thursday Blog Hop! Why did I create this Thursday blog hop, you ask? Simply put, my three kiddos (Henry, Buster, and Daisy) want to meet three or more friends on their favorite day of the week and I thought their idea was pawsome!

This pet friendly blog hop is for every two-legged and four-legged blogger who wants to meet new and old friends alike. If you are not a fan of blog hops and do not wish to add your link below, we invite you to simply have fun, leave a comment (or not), and meet new bloggers who might strike your fancy.

Here are the guidelines of the Thankful Fur 3 Thursday Blog Hop:

1. We love your pawticipation and want to show it! In addition to gaining followers, each week we are giving today's Google Friend Connect followers, RSS reader subscribers, and e-mail subscribers a chance to be featured in next Thursday's blog post by doing the following:

a) Become a Google Friend Connect follower or an e-mail subscriber or subscribe in a RSS reader.

b) Leave a comment letting me know that you want to me to post a write-up for next Thursday's Blog Hop. When you comment please let me know what type of follower you are along with your blog address.

2. To join in the Thankful Fur 3 Thursday, include your link in our list and follow The Teacher's Pets and my co-hosts, Feeling Beachie and Brian's Home. Visit other blogs on the list and comment to give them some blog love.

3. When people comment on your blog and let you know they’re a part of Thankful FUR 3 Thursday, return the favor and follow them back. This way everyone gets traffic and followers for pawticipating, and it’s a win-win situation.

4. Remember, YOU can host the link list on your blog too! Just click “GET THE CODE HERE…” at the bottom of the list.


As promised, let's put our 3 newest blog friends in the SPOTLIGHT! We hope you will make add these fantastic bloggers to your blogroll list today! Introducing......

My Photo

1. Neyland D. Cat is a sophisticated modern cat who enjoys reclining on the mobile heated furniture (also known as humans) and sharing his thoughts with the world. He currently live with three other cats, who he somehow manages to tolerate, and two humans who they keep as servants.

2. Liz is 34 and single who teaches 5th grade in Minneapolis, MN. She is owned by the world's greatest dog, a 65 pound English Bulldog named Bogart who farts, snores, and drools a lot and sometimes he's a little stinky but his mom says that's all part of his charm.

3. Hoke is a 4 1/2 year old West Highland White Terrier who lives in New Jersey with his Dog Mom and Dog Dad (aka Kevin and Stacey). He likes to watch squirrels and patrol the yard looking for cats and the occasional ground hog. He also likes to run through the garden and sit in the sun!


  1. we love LIZ!! We have been following her and Bogart for awhile now! We will head over to the others! Happy Thursday!

    The Things We Find Inside

  12. I am a new follower. I love my two precious cats, Chloe and Cecil, who are right now sitting on my desk watching me type!

  13. Yay! Look at all the new friends :) Looking forward to following your blog!

  14. This is so cool! Thanks for featuring us today, and we are so very honored to be a part of Thankful fur 3! As soon as I am doing correcting my pile of work, I'll be visiting some new blogs! :)

  15. Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes I am a Nana to twelve, and with my husbands, we have a total of 22! I started running ( turtle pace) five years ago when I was going through a stressful time. I feel it is what helped me, mentally, during that time. I was able to run, listen to music and sort out all of the problems in the world, during that hour or two!
    Keep up the good work with your return to running. Keep in touch!

  16. Since it's nearly impossible to get to everyone's blog in between pet sitting and other distractions today I thought I'd leave a note to everyone who joined in on the blog hop and thank everyone for pawticipating! Thank you so much! This blog hop idea did not catch on at first but eventually it spread like wildfire and I couldn't be happier because my goal was to spotlight my newest followers and act as a hostess so that every wonderfully talented blogger could meet and greet new and established bloggers and network, etc! Thank you so much for making this pet friendly blog hop come alive with lots of barks and meows!
